Circular walk from Solva to St Elvis and Dinas Fawr (8)
Circular walk from Solva to St Elvis and Dinas Fawr (8)
This series of photos portrays a 2-mile circular walk east and south of Solva, Pembrokeshire.

Initially, the walk climbs out of the valley of the River Solva onto The Gribbin, a knife-edge ridge between the glacial valleys of Solva and Gwadn. The walk then descends to a marshy area before climbing inland to farmland. Near St Elvis Farm, the walk passes a cromlech (a neolithic burial chamber) then heads to the coastpath and turns west to follow the clifftop. After descending into Gwadn cove, the walk climbs to rejoin The Gribbin before descending into Solva. The route can be followed on OS 1:50000 sheet 157 or on OS 'Explorer' 1:25000 sheet OL35.

This photo shows a feature that the guide books fail to mention - Solva sewage works. After passing two gates up on The Gribbin ridge, the walk descends steeply in the Gwadn valley, east of Solva. This sewage works is connected to the village by a foot tunnel under The Gribbin (the tunnel entrance can be clearly seen beside the River Solva near The Harbour Inn's carpark).
